When you work for Portakabin not only are you joining one of the industry’s most iconic and respected brands, you are joining a team where everyone has a voice and a role in the company’s success. As a responsible employer, Portakabin has created a workplace built on Teamwork, Integrity, Commitment and Innovation.

Our open and supportive culture

Employee Value Proposition

Portakabin exists to bring the wonder of modular building to the world. Creating precision-engineered buildings, we believe that our people are the key to exploring greater possibilities across our industry, thinking beyond products to solutions, and beyond customers to the people and societies they serve.

We recognise that everyone is different – that diversity helps us to understand different perspectives and opens our eyes to new ideas and innovation. Our ambition is to build a supportive and safe environment and an open culture for our people, to help them balance their lives between work and home, offer opportunities to grow in a way that suits their personal circumstances and encourage everyone to contribute to the Portakabin purpose.

  1. Be part of a responsible business

    Three key themes underpin our Responsible Business approach which is integrated into the way we do business. Portakabin is taking a responsible approach to all operations from compliance through to going beyond the expected and creating positive social and environmental value.

  2. Our commitment to your health and wellbeing

    Through our key focus areas of health and wellbeing, which includes both mental health and physical health, we aim to:

    • create a safe and healthy working environment where health risks are prevented and managed
    • encourage and support employees to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle
    • erase the stigma surrounding mental health in order for people to talk openly and honestly about mental health in the workplace
    • increase resilience by providing tools and techniques for individuals to be able to cope better with stresses in and out of work, on an individual level as well as a team level.
  3. Creating buildings for life

    It all starts with our buildings but it ends with making differences you can be proud to be part of.

    Working for Portakabin, you will deliver buildings for a wide range of needs and that means:

    • children can enjoy learning in safe, inspiring spaces and teachers can educate effectively in schools with bright, roomy classrooms
    • hospitals have enough ward capacity to care for the sick even during peak winter demands and enough operating theatres to treat the most vulnerable patients
    • buildings are provided quickly during cases of emergency need
    • national infrastructure projects can go ahead, supported by Portakabin, that couldn’t proceed without the building site facilities and accommodation that we provide.
  4. Diversity and Inclusion

    We respect that everyone is different and actively promote a working environment which is free from discrimination and one which is based on equality and diversity.

    Diversity is about understanding, recognising, respecting and valuing differences. Equality is about ensuring that everyone has equality of opportunity through a fair and consistent approach to the application of rules, policies and procedures.

  1. Wellbeing

    With backing from its Chief Executive and team of Directors, Portakabin aims to inspire its employees to take personal responsibility for their health, wellbeing, and safety.
